Hirsutophobia

I’m currently disgusted by …

The Victoria police, who in some bizarre throwback to unenlightened times have decided that beards are inappropriate for police officers. I’m particularly disgusted by the Police Association’s Senior Sergeant Greg Davies who says:

“I think it’s clear policing is becoming more and more of a profession than a past time and a professional outlook and appearance is an important part of it all.”

So having a beard is unprofessional?? I can’t believe that a modern organisation can get away with such ridiculous, ignorant, prejudicial, and discriminatory hirsutophobia. What next for Victoria? Burning suspected witches at the stake?
